The artist duo, Igor & Marina, have once again collaborated for their 2017 exhibition at Zolla/Lieberman gallery. As always, these artists make use of their separate talents but related interests in art and culture. Igor & Marina approach the canvas from different directions. Igor’s specialties are a subtle sense for color and a wonderful appreciation for the tactile nature of paint, canvas and abstract images. Conversely, Marina possesses an excellent touch for realistic drawing and is capable of creating neo-classical images based on her knowledge of the Western European and Russian Masters.
Classic. Witty. Mysterious. is an attempt to open the door to a place where each subject has countless reflections of their ever-changing shapes and colors. Igor & Marina add witty surrealist notes to give multiple meanings to their classical images. These subjects are placed in unexpected and mysterious frames and invite the viewer to enter an invented world to experience it for themselves.
